Armanti Edwards, Appalachian State’s record-setting quarterback, is expected to miss two to four weeks of practice after cutting his right foot yesterday in a lawn-mowing accident, according to Mike Flynn, ASU’s sports information director.
According to Flynn, Edwards was mowing the lawn at the off-campus residence he shares with teammate Brian Quick when he slipped pushing the mower up a hill and the mower came back on his foot. Quick took Edwards to Watauga Medical Center in Boone to have stitches.
It was determined that the injury is a cut only and that there is no structural damage.
Flynn said that expectations are that Edwards will be able to play in ASU’s opener Sept. 5 at East Carolina.
Edwards, a senior, won last season’s Walter Payton Award, given annually to the top player in the NCAA’s Football Championship Subdivision.
